Pin Active Directory to task bar RRS feed

  • Question

  • I think I've installed Active Directory to Windows 7, but I cannot seem to find the executable to pin it to the taskbar. It's as simple as that. All searches point to install modules already executed.  Can some one help.

  • Hi,

    install  RSAT and
    add RSAT via Windows Features to your OS:

    Open Control Panel and click Programs.
    Under Programs And Features, click Turn Windows Features On Or Off.
    In the Windows Features dialog box, scroll down and expand the Remote Server Administration Tools check box, then select the check boxes under it to install the remote administration snap-ins and tools that you want to install.
    Click OK when finished.

    Than type in the search box in the start menu "users" and move AD Users and Computers to your task bar.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    did you enabled the RSAT tools?

    If you enabled the tools open the Start Menu and go to "Administrative Tools" or open Start Menu type in "Users" and ADUC will be one option in the search preview.

  • are you looking for Active Directory users and computers?

    First make sure you have RSAT installed http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=7887

    then from the search box in the start menu type:

    dsa.msc

    that should open it, then you can pin it.

    Otherwise it should be under administrative tools in the control panel.

    Thanks for your reply & the link. I already had downloaded & installed the module. I just checked that it was installed yesterday, yet dsa.msc was not to be found on my c:\ drive anywhere.
